"I purchased my first shorthair, Rocky, 11 years ago from a farming neighbor two miles away. Julie and I got married 9 years ago, and then together bought our second dog, Molly. She instantly became part of the family. I was introduced to the AKC Hunt test by a friend who was involved with them at the time, and from then on I instantly had a passion for hunt tests and dog training. So, 5 more dogs later, a bigger house, and more land is where we got to where we are today. We run a small kennel just outside of Garland, Nebraska, a small farming community of 247 people, about 25 miles west of Lincoln. We have three beautiful children and we firmly believe that no child should grow up without a dog, and of course if it is a hunting dog that is better yet. We currently have 7 of our own dogs who are very well trained and socialized with our kids.
The reason we don't intend to get any bigger is so that we can devote the time and love that each dog requires to stay on top of their game. My wife, Julie is a Christian school teacher which allows us to devote more time in the summer to give the love, socialization and time to the litter of pups that is needed. Our children probably have a bigger role in this process than we do. Because our children have been around the dogs and the outdoors since birth, I like to be able to include them in training the dogs, hunting, fishing and enjoying the nature God has created as much as I can. Our dogs are hunted extensively on wild birds every weekend of the season. They are also used as guide dogs for a local hunting club. If you would like to hunt with me and see my dogs work, feel free to give me a call or book a hunt with Oak Creek Sporting Club by Brainard, NE. "
